It was a busy day in parliament as the vetting of the special prosecutor nominee especially when he argued that his grown-up "children" are his offspring and not children.

The witty lawyer and citizen vigilante, in answering a question about the number of children by Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, argues that he cannot term them children since they are married and with children.

In fact, Martin Amidu revealed that he nearly ticked "no children" in his CV because he no longer controls his children.

Interrogating his Curriculum Vitae, the former attorney general, said he almost wrote no child at the portion allocated for children on his CV, because his children are all adults and he does not consider them to be children.

"I have no responsibility for these people. So, as far as I’m concerned, they are not my children. If you go to the UK and tamper with anybody of this age, you will go to jail. So it’s because of the ambiguity of the question that I put those names there but my family matters are private,” he revealed.

The nomination of Martin Amidu as a special prosecutor has sparked controversy especially among members of the opposition NDC in which Martin Amidu is a card bearing member of.
